I planned the last A & B combined session for the end of the day, assuming a handful of students would have left. Otherwise we'd be looking at 27 cars on the relatively short course.

The heat was had I scheduled this on any day within a 10 day range before or after except the Sunday before, it would have been anywhere between 10-20 degrees cooler. I've only been to one event hotter than his, and that was Buttonwillow 3 years ago in the middle of June. But at that one I only had to instruct, not instruct AND wrangle cats.

Crazy hot weather, hope y'all had fun.
Had a GREAT time. That Buttonwillow kicked my butt more for some reason- it was very hard to concentrate that weekend. We were checking the weather all week leading up to this event, and it kept saying Monday would be the hottest... and it was.
It was a lot of cars out there, but a few of us found a ton of open track after letting a few cars pass.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
